My doctor had stated to me before to choose complex carbohydrates according to the carbohydrate content within the 3's and 6's, meaning 3% to 6% carbohydrate content. 3%: asparagus, bean sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, spinach; 6%: string beans, beets, brussel sprouts, chives, collards, eggplant, kale, leeks, okra, onion (just to name a few.) These are also richest in fiber and high in beneficial alkaline minerals.
OK! It can be a little complicated in trying to figure out all this stuff!!! I know that I am not going to get it completely right every time! But today I chose tuna on oaknut bread. I made my tuna with fat free mayo, mixed in onion and garlic powder, along with some other really nice herbs. I had some vegetable stock from my previous vegetable meals and made a nice broccoli, zucchini, and corn soup. My choice may be on the higher carbohydrate content, but IT'S HEALTHY. I will try to pick the lower ones on the next tries!!
I suppose BALANCE is the key. By balancing the protein and carbohydrate ratios helps our bodies produce balanced levels of two key hormones: insulin and glucagon. When balanced, they help promote normal appetite control, fat burning, emotional stability, mental clarity and physical endurance. So all we can do is REALLY TRY! RIGHT!!?
The Lord heals your diseases, redeems your life from the pit, satisfies you with good, shows compassion to his children, and knows your frame. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Psalm 103: 3-14
